Critic’s Notes

Chef Jake Bickelhaupt and his wife, Alexa Welsh, the hostess, live above this sleek BYO storefront, and the welcoming experience feels like a trip upstairs. The prix fixe menu and communal seating mean groups of strangers make their way together through Bickelhaupt’s 14 to 15 creative courses: a tumbler with a gelée of gin that looks like an ice cube; pork-rindish pecorino crisps atop pecorino foam and fondue. The whimsy never fatigues, nor does the meal drag. Make reservations at 42gramschicago
